General troubleshooting for color inkjet printers when one or more cartridges stop printing:

> Many inkjet printers have a test sheet that it will print out for you, and you can see which cartridges are not firing. Then you can do the following procedures below, and/or replace that bad cartridge that is not firing. See your owner's manual.

> Run print head and/or cartridge cleaning service. See your printer instruction manual how to do this. You may have to do this several times.

> Remove each print cartridge and gently wipe the ink-nozzle with a paper towel and alcohol; replace and run the print head cleaning procedure.

> Remove the print head (if you can-see your printer manual) and clean the nozzles with paper towel and alcohol. Replace the head and run the cartridge cleaning procedure. I have actually taken a clogged print head and run it under hot water in the kitchen sink. Dry it and replace. I started a Canon printer printing again that way. Do this only if nothing else works. If you damage it you have lost nothing, it wasn't working anyway.

> Reinstall the printer drivers.

> Carefully read the printer manual; usually there are several suggestions about what to do if the cartridges fail.

> Go to the HP web page, and look for troubleshooting suggestions. If there is a forum, join and ask your question there, you may get more experienced advice.

Also, remember that these inkjet printers do not last for more that a few years; after 3 years you can start planning on replacing it. The best service I have had is Canon printers, the IP Pixma series, but they only last a few years also.
